Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this '60s-set heist drama is relatively tame from a content perspective (aside from the nonstop smoking and drinking meant to evoke the earlier era), it probably won't interest most kids. Its message is a double-edged sword: Sexism and classism are vanquished ... through criminal activity. There's also extensive discussion of whether Moore's character is sacrificing "happiness" (a relationship, children, etc.) in order to succeed at business, as well as a lot of material about the dirty business of pretty things -- how diamonds are mined by the poor and sold to the rich. That said, the movie has virtually no sexual content, and strong language is also infrequent.

Sexual Content

Extensive discussion of sexism in the '60s workplace; at one point, a male co-worker clearly appreciates the view when Moore walks past. Some flirting.


One character is threatened with a gun; another suffers a heart attack that culminates in their collapse.


One use of "f--king," one "piss," and the phrase "cock-up," in its British slang meaning of "debacle."

Social Behavior

Extensive discussion of '60s-era sexism in the workplace, with Moore's character noting her mother's advice that "beating the boys won't make you popular or happy." Being passed over at work because of her gender directly leads to Laura's participation in Hobbs' scheme. Some discussion of South Africa's apartheid regime and the political ramifications of the diamond trade. Extensive discussion of divisions between white-collar executives and the working class, and how that can lead to bitter resentment. The film's ultimate message, while heavy-handed, is a positive one.


The only brand named in the film -- London Diamond Corp. -- is fictional.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Constant cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption, mostly for period effect; there's no mention of long-term consequences.
